White House scraps one Christmas decoration this year after Hunter controversy


The tradition of hanging Christmas stockings by the fireplace will not be one that is enjoyed at the White House this year, effectively letting President Joe Biden off the hook.

While stockings were hung for the Biden grandchildren in each of his previous Christmases as president, Biden came under heavy criticism for leaving out his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan Roberts in the tradition.

There were no stockings or even mention in 2021 or 2022 of the now five-year-old Navy, who is the daughter of Biden’s son Hunter and ex-stripper Lunden Roberts.

But just months after the president seemed to finally acknowledge her existence, it seems she still won’t be getting a stocking on the White House mantel in the State Dining Room – and neither will any of the Biden grandchildren.

“Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward,” Biden said in a statement to Fox News Digital back in July.

“This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter,” he added. “Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.”

Biden’s mention of Navy came after he had repeatedly been referring to his “six grandchildren,” including at the White House “take your child to work day” in April when he said, “I have six grandchildren, and I’m crazy about them. And I speak to them every single day. Not a joke.”

First lady Jill Biden unveiled the 2023 White House Christmas decorations on Monday, showing off a collection of trees, decorations and displays in various rooms and noticeably not having any stockings for the grandchildren in the White House State Dining Room, which instead showcased a lighted garland and toy soldier robots.

“There are no mention of any of the Biden grandchildren. Instead there are tributes to White House pets: Willow and Commander, the German Shepherd banished from the White House after biting Secret Service agents. Along with candy, toy soldiers, ballerinas, and tributes to military families,” the Daily Mail reported.

“The holidays offer a time for reflection and a break from our hurried lives, a season to be fully present with our friends and our families,” she said. “It’s also a season of gratitude.”

On the obvious absence of any stockings, a White House spokesperson told “The family will be spending Christmas at Camp David and their family stockings will be there.”

There was some snickering on social media after the announcement of this year’s holiday theme of Magic, Wonder, and Joy.
